     For me, the Golden Eternity is another name for the Undefinable, the Incomprehensible Mystery, Eternal Being, Awareness, God, Great Spirit.  I see all those terms as interchangeable.  Golden Eternity is beyond space and time and manifests through each of us, and in some moments, when we get beyond our thinking and our delusions, when we are still, we get a glimpse of Golden Eternity.  It is already here with us, and we are with it, and we don't see it due our busyness or ignorance or whatever.  Like the fish that doesn't see the water.  I've had a few brief experiences in my life that I guess I was in Golden Eternity and felt everything was alright.  Those are wonderful moments.  I get my thinking to stop getting in the way of this awareness mainly by being present -- present to what I am experiencing and present to those with me.

    To be present is a golden glory, to be present with one's friends  increases the golden glory, to higher level of brilliance.
